I recommend winrar but there are several free programs for them as well. I believe one is called 7x or 7zip.

Google them.

How to open .zip file downloaded to usb flash drive


Very easy. Create a folder on the device you want to download to. If its a computer, create one on your screen, (desktop)if not great it where you want to.If its not a self unzipping file you will need to use an app that comes with your PC or APPLE plug in the USB, make sure windows recognizes it. Then go to "my computer", left click on the USB holding it down constantly. Drag it over to the folder you created on your desktop and release it. Next double click the folder to open it up. Click on the USB file to unzip. If it asks you were, use current folder. It will unzip as of it to that folder.

Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client. Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.

Blocked Attachments
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.


Forward Workaround While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead. Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.

Compression Workaround

Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.

Cannot receive and open picture or data from friends via email


What can't you do? receive or read? if you can't receive then you won't be able to open a picture. To open a picture sent by email you need a program to open the type of picture that is being sent.

This depends of the email client you are using. If they are sent as attachments then save those attachments or download them to your hard drive. If they are embedded in the email then you will want to right click on the pictures and choose 'save as'.
Once the pictures are in the desired folder you can right click on the file again and choose 'rename' This will give you the option to name the picture anyway you like.

I am unable to download a file. Please call me. 303-995-4469. I need to download that file today. ceredussault@msn.com


Have the person that sent you the email - re-send that email. Then instead of opening that email attachment, save it first to a location on your hard drive.

then you should be able to open it safely and completly.
